The KJ Works M9 is part of their PTP range and is claimed to be such a close replica of the Beretta 92FS that it can be used as a training tool. Fortunately, the reviewer of this 6mm replica also owns a 9mm version, so we can find out whether this is true.
The KJW Ruger MK 1 is cheap, plastic, gas powered and non-blowback. So, it must be complete junk? Well, surprisingly, no…
Replicas don’t get more historic or iconic than the Luger. But, is the KWC blowback replica of this famous pistol any better than previous attempts by other manufacturers?
First the Russian army used the Nagant revolver as a sidearm. Then this was replaced by the Tokarev TT33 which was in turn superseded by the Makarov PM. This Gun Heaven replica is of a Chinese copy of the Makarov, the Model 59 but is it any good?
The CO2 powered Nagant M1895 revolver replica is available in 6mm, 4.5mm and .177” pellet versions from several distributors. It’s great to see a replica of such a classic revolver, but unfortunately, this does seem to have a couple of issues.
The FN Model 1910 has been called “the deadliest handgun ever made‘” Want to find out why? And whether this Chinese replica is any good?
OK, so this is “just” a Chinese made, spring powered airsoft pistol. But, it actually isn’t a bad replica and it cost less than I have paid for a beer in many places. So, what’s it like…
The Smart K-28 is a replica of the Colt Model 1903 Hammerless Pocket Pistol. Which is good because as far as I know, there aren’t any other replicas of this pistol. Unfortunately, it’s a cheap-as-chips Chinese springer and it’s not a perfect replica. Is it worth having?
Spring powered replicas are generally pretty rubbish. And Chinese made springers are at the very bottom of the replica food chain. Or at least that’s what I thought until I tried this one…
Tokyo Marui replicas may be expensive, but they also have a reputation for being well-made and reliable. Adrian has owned his TM Colt 1911 for over six years and shot thousands of BBs through it, so, how has it been?
Tokyo Marui spring powered replicas
Given the wide availability of gas and CO2 powered replicas, many people tend to disregard spring powered replicas. However, some of these are actually pretty good and the cost of shooting spring powered replica is virtually zero. World of Replica Air Pistols reader R-Gun Pete has owned several Tokyo Marui spring powered replicas for almost twenty years. Here he explains how he came to own them and what they’re like to own and shoot.
Umarex make some very, very nice replicas. The 6mm Walther PPQ M2 is one of them.
The Browning Hi Power is one of the classic handguns of the 2oth Century so it’s perhaps surprising that there aren’t more replicas available. One of the better ones is this all metal, 6mm, blowback Hi-Power by WE.
The WE Bulldog is a blowback replica of the Beretta PX4 Storm. As a replica, it’s pretty good and as a shooter it’s lots of fun too.
In historical terms, the Tokarev Model 33 (TT-33) lies between the Nagant M1895 revolver and the Makarov pistol, which makes it interesting to collectors of classic handguns. But, is the WE blowback replica of the TT-33 any good?
Another classic replica revolver review and this time it’s the British Webley MKVI. The original was used during World War One and Two and has appeared in more films and television shows than seem possible. But, does this replica do it justice?
